These tropical islands are truly breathtaking

The Maldives have been described as ‘teardrops in the Indian Ocean” and, if you are looking for one of the most romantic luxury holiday destinations on the planet, then we believe you will find it here. The Maldives are made up of a series of islands offering breathtakingly beautiful beaches often framed by gentle swaying palm trees and exposed sandbanks surrounded by crystal clear balmy waters.

These tropical islands brilliantly combine simplicity with five-star luxury resorts offering award-winning spas, amazing meal options and imaginative amenities – the hardest choice you will have to make is which stunning island or indeed islands to visit and that’s where we can help. All-inclusive stays are more or less the norm here but be sure to ask and we’ll look into every available option for you.

The Maldives is home to 22 geographical atolls and you’ll find exceptional four and five-star resorts abound throughout. Each resort has its own style with some more suited to families whilst other are fabulous for honeymooners or couples seeking a romantic break. There are resorts with undersea restaurants, others with outstanding luxury spas and some ultra-luxury resorts with over-water villas so plush that you’ll never want to go home…

Of course, you might not want to spend all your holiday time in one destination so why not consider a twin-centre vacation? You can experience the hustle and bustle of Bangkok or Dubai before flying on to your chosen Maldivian haven – just ask us for details. Designer Travel specialise in arranging and booking luxury breaks to the Maldives and wherever else in the world you want to go. Our experienced Travel Experts love working with you to create your tailor-made bespoke trip that is exactly what you’ve dreamed of. The Maldives may be a destination you only get to go to once in your lifetime so we ensure you get the best advice and the best service possible with our very personal holiday service.

Whether you’re planning a wedding, renewal of vows, honeymoon, a family trip or a couples romantic break away, Designer Travel can help. We are independent so we have access to a huge range of flight and accommodation options, plus we’re ABTA bonded too.

Leisure & Activities

Diving and Snorkelling
What better place to dive and snorkel on the planet than The Maldives; the clear aqua blue sea is brimming with spectacular sea life including Manta rays and reef sharks. Many hotels offer PADI approved diving instruction and courses for beginners and more experienced divers.

Situated in the South Nilandhoo Atoll, the island of Kudahuvdhoo is home to the mysterious hawittas mounds believed to be ruins of ancient Buddhist temples. There’s also an old mosque which features stunning masonry.

Manta Point
Weighing up to 5000 pounds with a wingspan of up to an enormous 25 feet, the best location to dive and snorkel with Manta rays is at Manta Point, situated in the southeast of the North Mali Atoll. We can advise on which resorts are closest to this amazing location.
